Juliette Aiyana has used her experience as a practitioner of Chinese medicine to help people create health and balance in their lives since 2001

Wow those 19 years went by quickly!

Nationally Board Certified (NCCAOM) and a New York State Licensed Acupuncturist, she is a professor of Chinese medicine and the author of Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine & Healthy Weight Loss. She received her Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from The Florida Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2001. Since the pandemic, Ms. Aiyana pivoted her practice from a hybrid in-person herbal and acupuncture practice and online consulting to exclusively providing online virtual consulting. 

Ms. Aiyana specializes in the treatment of chronic and stubborn diseases such as dermatology, autoimmune disorders, allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, menstrual disorders, menopausal symptoms, thyroid disorders, chronic fatigue, migraines, anxiety and more.

Helping people heal and move through the spiritual struggles that we all share is more than a job — this is Ms. Aiyana's life’s work. She is dedicated to her work with patients who are committed to their wellness with acupuncture, Chinese herbs, nutritional counseling and mind-body balance.

Using what she teaches, they connect with the signals from their body, mind, heart and spirit. She realizes that your transformative process takes, patience, perseverance and compassion.

Ms. Aiyana’s special interest in dermatology, allergies and inflammatory autoimmune diseases were deepened when her son was born in 2008 with eczema and a long list of life threatening food allergies. She dove deeply into the study of these disorders from the Chinese medical perspective in an effort to help heal her child. Her son’s eczema completely cleared with Chinese herbal therapy program that she created for him, vitamins and supplemental dietary oils and finding the best natural, topical skin care products for his skin. He has since also tested negative to five of his previous life threatening food allergies (egg, dairy, almonds, hazelnut, pine nut, poppy seed) and is left with allergies to sesame seeds, peanuts and other tree nuts. After clearing her son’s eczema, she concentrated on her study of Chinese Herbal Dermatology, completed a diploma program in the same, began teaching other practitioners and heals scores of patients with various dermatological complaints. 

Her special interest in treating gynecological disorders are what brought her to Chinese medicine as patient, and opened her to this career when she was in her early 20s. Modern medicine had nothing to offer her other than medicating her with hormonal birth control and offering surgery. She believed that she was too young to be medicated for the rest of her life or to face surgery and sought out natural healthcare. Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture treatments and dietary change completely cured her. She has since healed thousands of patients of varying gender identities who seek her help with gynecological disorders. 

Ms. Aiyana is a professional member of the following organizations National Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental MedicineAcupuncture Society of New York, Shen Nong Society: East Asian Herbal Medicine, American Society of Acupuncturists.

When not treating patients, teaching or writing, she is whipping up tasty and healthy dishes in the kitchen, writing letters to lawmakers to advocate for human rights, BLM, health care rights, clean water and other activism, or Googling, ”What is a VSCO Girl?” To ready herself for a day in the life of a New York City single, working mom she wakes up and meditates for 20 minutes, stretches for about 10 minutes, then gets out bed to make a pot of strong French press coffee.  Juliette is initiated into the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of the Menla Medicine Buddha Mandala by Geshe Jigme Gyatso.
